Great book about life in Stalin-era Russia. Not only common people were disappearing from different, sometimes weird for now-days people, reasons. Faces of disappeared had to be removed from all existing photographs and from memories of people close to them. Small kids were told that their fathers, mothers, siblings or relatives, who disappeared never existed or died. And the truth came out very long after the events.
